Capricious Lord

(428)  Tumi alo chaya khela khelite jano

You know how to play the game of chiaroscuro;
How to pull the strings of all at whim You know.

You can bring down light in darkest night;
You can discharge darkness over daylight.
You know how to please the dumb by granting tongue;
And You know how to make heart's harpstrings resound.

With Your grace, the world is made colorful;
But, in Your liila, all are subjected to maya.
Casting aside illusion's net, You bring liberation;
You bring liberation, Lord, You bring liberation.
